Imphal, July 14:
Reacting to the press statement issued by Pandit Loishang, dated July 10, which appeared in some newspaper under the heading “Lai Khubamsing Sokpiganu” which literally means not to touch the site located for God and Goddess, the All Manipur Dharma Raksha Samiti claimed the statement as false and propaganda.
A statement by M. Priyananda Sharma, General Secretary of the All Manipur Dharma Raksha Samiti The Dharma Raksha Samiti argued that the ritual site of ., Ebudhou Pakhangba, Lainingthou Nongsaba, Ema Ebemma Yumjao Lairembi as claimed by the Pandit Loishang is false and fabricated. And thus there is no question of demolishing the ritual site while keeping the wheels of the Rath Chariot at the site which has been following for a long time.
The statement said that the three idols of indigenous God and Goddess were not available at this location where Head of the Pandit Loisang claimed in the press release. The said three important idols were kept available at the west side of the Macha Leima School which were earlier the Pakhangba Pukhri. It is also suspicious that some of the individuals play a role of uncertainty and to spread havoc among the community.
